The Tom Brady car accident was what many NFL fans woke up to on Thursday morning. For gamblers, it was a wake up call they did not want to receive, many of whom had already placed bets on the New England Patriots for the upcoming season.

Those bettors who had no interest in the Brady story or the Patriots, will look forward to tonight when the Minnesota Vikings and the New Orleans Saints kick off the NFL season. Gamblers have been waiting since February for a meaningful NFL game, and tonight the wait ends.

The Saints are the defending Super Bowl champions, and they are the betting favorites in the opener. New Orleans is favored by six points against the team they defeated in the NFC Championship game last season. The total for the game is 49.5, even with the Vikings having one of the top defenses in the league.

Minnesota fans will be watching closely to see how Brett Favre looks in his return. Favre has been nursing a sore ankle since off season surgery and many analysts believe it will be difficult for Favre to stay healthy the entire year. Minnesota is pinning its title hopes on one more Favre run.

The saints again will have one of the top offenses in the league, led by Drew Brees. New Orleans will have to repeat their defensive effort from last year when they were at the top of the league in terms of turnovers created. New Orleans has given up a lot of yards, so the turnovers will be key to keeping the defense off the field.

The Vikings and Saints will be playing the only game on Thursday, with the rest of the league starting their season on Sunday and Monday. No defending Super Bowl champion has ever lost their opener since the NFL went to the format of having the champs open the season on Thursday night.
